Adventure Training Trips

Each summer since 2011 we’ve been running adventure training trips to the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. This has grown into an Island Adventure in the Pacific Northwest coming into its 3rd year and our maiden voyage of a Canyon Adventure in the Northern Sonora Desert. These trips are designed as all inclusive trips that teach contingency planning and survival as part of the core curriculum. They are open to pilots from all over the world. It’s been incredibly rewarding pairing clients with some of the expert instructors we’ve met here over the last 20 years. If you’d like to join us on one of our Adventure Training Trips please visit this page for more details.
